By William Allen. A mid-'70s paperback on Charles Starkweather. (Caril Ann Fugate, still living and paroled the same year the PB dropped, isn't mentioned in the cover copy, but there's an epilogue about her then-status as an inmate in a Nebraska penitentiary.) The photographs are actually pretty dark. I can't agree with the roller-disco choices in font style and color (or the matching pink tint of the page edges), though; I know these were basically children, but: no.

The book has noticeable edgewear, spine cracks, and a couple of price stickers contribute a Warholian commentary to the front cover of a book with "portrait" in the subtitle; there's significant page toning, and the back third of the book seems misprinted, though it's still fine as far as readability. But it's fairly straight, the pages are holding fine...a relative rarity that made some bad design choices, but will be very informative for movie buffs and vintage-forensic-psych readers.
